Ten teams battled in the female division, while four competed in the men’s.

The LGM is one of the longest running annual volleyball tournaments in Nunavut.

The tourney is named in honour of Laura Gauthier, who lived almost her entire life in the North, and passed away in August 2000.

Look for the complete story on the tournament in a future edition of Kivalliq News.
